Ascension Thursday - Video and Resources

Today is Ascension Day. Though we can't gather to have glitter imposed, we do have ways to participate in this important feast day.

VIDEO: Lift Up Your Hearts to the Ascended King with Fr. Dean  

We are blessed to hear from Fr. Dean through a video. It can be found on St. Aidan's YouTube Channel. In it he refers to a number of resources. The links are included below for easy access:

Malcolm Guite’s Sonnet, “Ascension”
Sarah Marjorins’ song, “God Ascended” (Cardiphonia Music)
Dr. Eleanor Parker, “An Anglo-Saxon Ascension”
Interview with Gerrit Scott Dawson & Jonny Woodrow, “Why the Ascension of Jesus Matters” 
Victoria Emily Jones’ website “Art & Theology: Revitalizing the Christian Imagination Through Painting, Poetry, Music, and More”

Thank you to Jeremy for creating the video!

We acknowledge that Jesus, the Lord of all, has called His Church to be a Church of all nations. With joy and in humility we gather on Treaty 4 Territory, the traditional lands of the Cree, Ojibwe, Saulteaux, Dakota, Lakota, Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
